    Default Hit & run rider caught

    Last week, a dirt bike rider hit and severely injured a 4-year-old boy in a parking lot at Flushing Meadows Park ('64-'65 World's Fair site). He didn't stop, and rewards were offered for information leading to his arrest.

    He's been caught, and see if you can guess how they found him. It shouldn't take you more than 30 seconds to figure this one out.

    2016 XL883L Two-tone blue and white. Almost 42 hp! Status: destroyed, now owned by the insurance company. The hole in my memory starts an hour before the accident and ends 24 hours after.

    He posted photos from his phone on facebook.
    I went to the grocery store and there was a sign at the door. It said no food or drinks inside.
    ........So I went home.

    Or YouTube; what a bloody moron. How could anyone think it's okay to run away from something like that and then brag about it.

    Well, he did, in effect, though that was not his intent.

    Bingo, we have a winner!

    I foresee a day when security cameras will no longer be necessary. The crooks will carry their own.

    Not ALL conspiracy theories are false. If it's on the radio, TV AND the internet (with pictures) then it's true. If it shows up in print, it always will be. www.birdsarentreal.com
